We studied Ancient Egypt to go along with our work with Sonlight, Core B. We are working our way through history from Creation to the fall of Rome so the past three weeks found us in Ancient Egypt. Hope this post is helpful!
Harriette Knight's insight:
There are some beautiful projects here. I would love to see something like this done with children (maybe during Black History Month), if we must continue to isolate and segment history.
I did see the symbol for 100 in hieroglyphics, but I did not see an emphasis on the number system. I think of these ancient Egyptians as black people because I think of Egypt as part of the African continent. Images of the Egyptians have always suggested otherwise.
What part of history is HIStory or HERstory? It appears that much of the TRUTH is buried in the PAST.
1) They did not ride camels The camel was not used regularly in Egypt until the very end of the dynastic age. Instead, the Egyptians used donkeys as beasts of burden, and boats as a highly convenient means of transport. The River Nile flowed through the centre of their fertile land, creating a natural highway (and sewer!).
